Nikkei rebounds
(05-31 14:49)

Stocks in Tokyo advanced 1.37 percent, as a weakening yen helped the benchmark index rebound from the previous day's plunge of more than five percent.
The headline Nikkei 225 index added 185.51 points to 13,774.54, while the Topix index of all first-section shares edged 0.12 percent, or 1.36 points, higher to 1,135.78.
The drop yesterday followed a week of wild volatility on the Tokyo market which included a jaw-dropping plunge of 7.3 percent, the worst single-day fall since Japan's 2011 quake-tsunami disaster.--AFP
